Mammoth Cave is a part of the Green River valley and hilly country of south central Kentucky. Mammoth Cave National Park has the world’s largest network of natural caves and underground passageways. It is the extensive cave system in the world. This is the world’s longest known cave system, with more than 400 miles explored. It also has a number of endangered species. Early guide Stephen Bishop called the cave a “grand, gloomy and peculiar place,” but its vast chambers and complex labyrinths have earned its name – Mammoth.
Mammoth Cave doesn’t glamorize the underworld with garish lighting. You will never forget that you are deep in the earth. You can’t get a better experience in the totality of darkness and the miracle of light in somewhere else, but Mammoth Cave.
